Christmas traditions rituals and symbols

Happy New year involve a lot of traditions and rituals.

I would like to draw readers ‘ attention only on the traditional new year symbols of our nation.

Its importance is today particularly relevant. We practically know almost nothing about national symbols, which our ancestors designed the Christmas event. And bow to foreign, in particular Chinese and Japanese, characters.

Later this custom was borrowed by most Protestant German community of Westphalia. This tradition quickly spread throughout Germany and then throughout Western Europe. At first, Christmas trees were placed just in the homes of the wealthy (in addition to the Christmas tree for new year Germany was used also pine, beech and branches of a cherry).

In Russia long enough in polti until the middle of last century, the simple tree houses did not put. It was a privilege of the upper classes, in this way demonstrated their “not servile” origin. This, of course, is not to condemn or deny the very form of the Christmas tree. To get a “green beauty”, it was not so easy.

While all pre-painted: we bring salad and fruit, Ivanov — home-made wine and cake, and Dima is preparing a leg of lamb.

Tradition can “build” our lives literally brick by brick: for Breakfast you should eat cereal, a festive table isn’t imaginable without pie, we clean the apartment on Saturdays, and we’ve taken vacations at sea. And why so, we do not think. However, the answer will probably not find — just initially formed.

Custom or dogma?

There is another function of good family traditions, although at first glance it may seem side: they determine the degree of viability of a “body” that supports them.

It is here and is the “watershed” between the customs of the living and the dead. Last mean blindly following a routine once someone order. Usually they settle for those who are too lazy or too busy to take the initiative to create something Continue reading
